Creating value and elevating the hairdressing industry globally is at the heart of Wella Professional’s mission to Make Change, and this is firmly evidenced in the brand’s efforts to shape the future of the hair salon experience.

The award-winning Smart Mirror, developed in partnership with CareOS, a CES® 2020 Innovation Awards Honoree, enhances the hair color experience from consultation to aftercare with live augmented reality (AR) hair color try on, facial recognition that enables the retrieval of past looks, and 360° video capture to view the hair at every angle.

Color DJ is the world’s first in-salon device for stylists to design and produce ultra-personalized Color Masks digitally. With over 60 billion color combinations possible, in addition to personalized levels of conditioning properties and fragrance, salon clients walk away with a bespoke, take-home product completely tailored to their needs.

Technologies such as online booking and salon management solutions complement the Smart Mirror and Color DJ to allow salon owners to give their clients a 360° digitally enabled experience.

These are not one-off gimmicks they are mainstream changes which will future-proof and help drive growth of the salon professional industry,” said Sylvie Moreau, President, Coty Professional Beauty.

“Our brands have a deep heritage in supporting the salon industry, and the launch of the Wella Digital Salon Platform reimagines that support in the digital age,” said Chris Chesebro, Senior Vice President, Digital Transformation & Ecommerce at Coty Professional Beauty. “We’ll be using 2020 to build our foundation, launching in a number of salons to help build the model. The platform is powered by CareOS, allowing us to aggregate services and information from many sources and to help empower hairdressers and salon owners to more efficiently manage their business – not to mention, offer new & innovative services to their clients.”

  • Live AR hair color try on that allows real-time visualization of color in the mirror during the consultation phase of a client’s salon visit;
  • Facial recognition technology that enables the retrieval of past looks and services, helping the stylist to better serve their client with a highly personal experience across several visits;
